There are a range of exhibits ranging from Bruce Lee to traditional Chinese art to contemporary folk culture. The quality of the special exhibits can vary - some are local affairs but once in a while there are outstanding special exhibits - like the current one on royal wedding in the Qing Dynasty (to end in Feb). You can use... More

We went during an afternoon, it is located near 3 subway stations so all of them can give you access to the museum. The exterior building is building and full of Chinese influence. It is located in Shatin, so not really a tourist-crowded place and not so close to downtown. It is okay if you wanna come around but traffic... More

Situated in the suburb in a well treed site, next to a flowing stream, with a Chinese influenced archetecture, the museum presents a picturesque and tranquil setting. A step inside the entrance, one is greeted by an open lobby and a wide, sweeping staircase modelled after the Forbidden City, leading to the upper floor.The purpose of our visit was to... More

Visited on a rainy and chilly day during recent stay in Hong Kong. Directions to the museum are VERY complicate on Google or anywhere else. We finally arrived there via subway, bus, and LOTS of walking. Not in the best mood. Anyway, visit started pleasantly enough with nice exhibits including Cantonese opera and a Wedding exhibition, but then .... Almost... More

The museum opens everyday except Tuesday. One can get there by taking the East Rail Line to Shatin and walk to the museum. Or one can take a bus and walk. Either way one has to walk a fair distance unless taking a taxi. Bruce Lee, Cantonese Opera, ancient pottery are permanent exhibits in the museum. They are free. On... More

I was there primarily to see Bruce Lee exhibition. The museum is quite out of the way but it is not very difficult to find. It is quite near the Sha Tin MTR station and once you alight, there are many helpful signs to direct you to the place. The museum is free of charge. When I was there, there... More

We really enjoyed our visit. This museum has something for every one. The top floor has some amazing pottery, down one floor to the Wedding exhibition, which you have to pay for, it was very informative. There is also a section on Cantonese Opera, which was fun. There is a large section on Bruce Lee, also informative. There is a... More

Pay to enter exhibit of Qing dynasty emperor weddings, ceremonies, costumes and banquets. Nice to see where our wedding rituals originated from.

The Hong Kong Heritage Museum, located in the New Territories a d easily accessible by MTR, is worth a visit only if you are a Bruce Lee fan. However, if you are looking for broader aspects about Hong Kong's own cultural history or traditional heritage, then it is seriously lacking, and actually almost completely absent. The saving grace of this... More

The museum if far from central Hong Kong but we wanted to see the temporary exhibition on Bruce Lee (until July 2018) and it was worth the effort. There is a 75 minutes film in the theatre on the first floor, don't miss it. The theatre is quite big so no need to rush there but check the times on... More
